Jozi Book Fair

Jozi Book Fair
The Jozi Book Fair is an annual event which takes place in Newtown, Johannesburg. The Fair will be held over two days from the 27th October 2012 to 28th October 2012. The Jozi Book Fair will be preceded by a conference on the literacy movement, this will take place on the 26th October 2012. The theme of the Book Fair this year is the "State of adult literacy in South Africa, from Apartheid to post Apartheid democracy." Unemployment, development of skills and the quality of life are just some of the challenges that post apartheid South Africa faced.

Together with Botsotso Pulbishers, Khanya College launched the first edition of Jozi Book Fair(JBF) in 2009 at Museum Africa. The aim of the fair is to provide a public platform where reading and writing and publishing come together. This is where authors and publishers can come together and strengthen smaller publishers, which will in turn create a market for writers as well as the public mingling with all of them. When these groups come together it creates an ongoing cycle where they reinforce each other, creating a stronger reading and writing culture. The Fair will give smaller publishers the opportunity to exhibit their products. There will also be a variety of training workshops, children's programmes to encourage reading and writing and discussions and public lectures. Public libraries also get a chance to exhibit and to network with these publishers. There will also be invited international guest authors who will interact with the public and the South African writers and publishers.

Khanya College has partnered with three organisations, the Tembaletu Trust, the Centre for Education Rights and Transformation, and the DVV International. Some of the discussions at the Fair will include, understanding the context and orientation of the literacy movement historically, educational materials and ways to deepen adult literacy and publishing and promoting indigenous language in South and Southern Africa today.

Registration for Jozi Book Fair will open on the 1st June 2012. For more information visit www.jozibookfair.org.za or contact Oupa Lehulere on 084-377-3001, Sekiwe Yena on 084-377-3018 or Tremaine Bam on 084-377-3013.
